Hello,

in our installation we like to increase the main buffers.
We like to increase them to a size at which the main buffers
and the temp buffers are greater (128GB) than the swap
space.
Sybase IQ does not accept this configuration as it requires
at least the same swap space as buffers are configured.

From my point of view I do not understand this limitation of
the server.
Why do the server wants to swap out data from the main store
when it can get non dirty pages every time again from the
main store.
For us it makes no sense to write the data to swap area
which already exist in the (permanent) main store.
Even writing the (few) dirty pages back to main store would
not be a big afford in comparison of writing the buffers to
swap.

Do I misunderstand the storage management?
Why can't we configure "no swap" usage?

Thanks for answers.
